We are excited to announce a partnership between Podiumwear & British Biathlon. As we at Out There are fortunate to have a couple of Team Out There athletes on the British Biathlon Team we worked along with them and Podiumwear for Tech clothing support going in to the next seasons. As part of this there is the opportunity to purchase Special British Biathlon cycling kits to support the Team! The storefront is open and will CLOSE on June 11th. Kits will then go into production and upon completion be mailed to you in the UK or anywhere else in the world!

Cable, Wisconsin, USA will host the 2015 IPC Nordic Skiing World Championships, the third time the United States will host the event and the first time in Wisconsin. Over 150 athletes from 20 countries are expected to compete in the event between 23 January – 1 February 2015 which will be staged on the very same trail system where the first able-bodied cross-country skiing World Cup was born in 1978.
All training and competitions for the Championships will be hosted on Telemark Resort property located just three miles east of the town of Cable. The storied property, which sits along the nearly one million acre Chequamagon National Forest, boasts over 300km of groomed cross-country ski trails and serves as the starting point of the American Birkenbeiner, which is the largest cross country ski race in North America.
Nestled at the base of Mount Telemark, the venue is outstanding, of international standard with appropriate access and located within seven miles of the Athlete’s Village.

The Wisconsin Biathlon Association invites you to venture out into our beautiful winter weather and join us at our competition venue to learn about biathlon, the Olympic winter sport that combines cross country skiing with rifle marksmanship.
The basics of biathlon shooting techniques and safety fundamentals will be presented. No previous biathlon experience is required. The clinic will consist of indoor presentations combined with outdoor instruction and practice on the biathlon range. The clinic will take place regardless of snow, trail or weather conditions.
